TWU’s Jackson named APAC Doctoral Student of the Year


DENTON — Dallas Jackson, a doctoral student in kinesiology at Texas Woman’s University, recently was named Doctoral Student of the Year by the Adapted Physical Activity Council of the American Association for Physical Activity and Recreation (AAPAR).

AAPAR is a branch of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD).

“It’s an honor to be recognized by your peers in your field of study,” Mr. Jackson said.  “This award is a reflection of the quality of student that Texas Woman’s University — specifically the department of kinesiology — produces.”

According to AAPAR, the award is presented annually to a student who has shown exceptional promise as a leader; has provided exceptional service to individuals with disabilities through volunteer work or other activities; and has provided an inspiration to others in the field of physical education, therapeutic recreation or related areas.

Mr. Jackson is pursuing his doctorate of kinesiology, with an emphasis in adapted physical activity/education.  He also serves as an adapted physical activity instructor in the Denton Independent School District, traveling to different campuses to provide services to students with disabilities.  He plans to teach at the university level after graduation and conduct research.

He is a 1997 graduate of Berkner High School in Richardson and is the son of Robert Jackson of Richardson.
